IT Guy Performs Printer Exorcism and It Works

People have such a limited understanding of technology that the office tech support person can seem like a literal godsend. IT has to deal with some of the worst tech support gore around, and managers who don't know what computers are. This guy had to deal with a problem printer, and used an unorthodox method.

Apocalyptic Images From Newfoundland's Storm Of The Century

Just in case you missed it, Newfoundland was overrun by a snowstorm of epic proportions. Yes, we're talking 30 inches of snow on Friday, which was reported from St. John's International Airport. Residents have been left to quite literally dig themselves out from the storm. The Canadian Armed Forces even stepped up to help in the efforts to clear up all the snow, and help out residents in need. Outside of all that chaos, the storm definitely made for quite the array of hilarious and crazy images. Nature is a wild beast, man.

Prick Customer Publicly Shames Target Employee, It Backfires

Every once and a while one of those stories come along that restore our faith in humanity, before that same fragile faith is quickly crushed again by some new and discouraging headline. Well, at least we can enjoy this deeply satisfying tale of goodhearted people banding together to fundraise a $30K vacation for "Target Tori."

Apparently Tori was mistreated and generally bombarded with BS by a rude customer over a damn toothbrush. He tried to publicly shame Tori, and it backfired in the best kind of way. 

You can check out the GoFundMe for Tori over here if you're curious on how things played out.

Twitter Roasts Rob Lowe For His NFL Hat, He Responds

Rob Lowe did not anticipate the reaction he received on Twitter, over his NFL hat. People were quick to poke fun at the fact that the guy showed up to an NFL game, basically just rooting for the NFL. I guess at least Rob Lowe doesn't have to deal with alienating himself from any fans in particular. Based off his hat, his team would appear to be undecided.
